Man’s Best Friends

Dear Editor

I was happy to see some of my work covered in the summer issue of The Shocker (“Man’s Best Friends,” page 47).

I noticed that there was an error in the web address given for my cyanobacteria site. It is given as “cyanosite.bio.purdue.edu,” when it should be “www-cyanosite.bio.purdue.edu.”   The address given will not work. Cyanosite has been online so long that its address is very old fashioned. We could not obtain a ‘cyanosite’ domain at that time nor did we get the more common ‘www’ prefix seen today.

Keeping in Touch

Dear WSU  Alumni Association:
I work in development at the Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, Md. Our daughter attended the school for 13 years (K-12), and I started to work there the October after she graduated in 1997. I’m still in touch with Dick Welsbacher, our wonderful and esteemed leader in theater all those years. Quincalee Brown ’61/61 is a friend here, and Jean Ann Stevens Cusick ’64 is a lifelong friend too. Hooray for friends!

Dear WSU Alumni Association:

Enclosed is a check for membership into the alumni association.

I retired from teaching Sept. 1, 2002. I live in Springfield, Mo., with my wife, Betty. We have two daughters, one living in Olathe, Kan., and one living in Ozark, Mo. We have been blessed with two grandchildren.

Best wishes,

Wynne J. Harrell ’56/59

Springfield, Mo.

Editor’s Note: One of the core services provided by the wsu Alumni Association is keeping alumni records, not simply current addresses on more than 112,000 alumni and university friends, but also much heartier fare: the association’s Alumni Information Center maintains an incredible 9,570,000 fields of information within a vast computer database as well as more than 25,000 biographical files that preserve newspaper clippings, résumés, correspondence and photographs of alumni, faculty and notable university friends. To keep this information as current as possible, aic staff rely on participation by alumni — like Dalene Barry Dean and Wynne Harrell, who provided the association news about their careers. Harrell, along with his note reprinted above, also provided the association with a news release announcing his retirement and covering his impressive career in music education. All this is exactly the kind of information that excites the AIC staff. Shannon Jobe, director of alumni information, encourages all alumni to “keep in touch with us. We love to hear news about our Shocker alumni all over the globe.”
